INSIDE MAC GAMES Jan/Feb 1995 Volume 3 Issue 1 & 2
Here is the oldest IMG disc in my collection, recently purchased on eBay after a very long search. It's exceedingly rare, containing a video interview with Bungie Software during the commercial release of the original Marathon, which even Bungie.org was unable to find until now. Goodness knows how many copies exist and what condition they may be in. This one was lovingly preserved by its original owner and was copied cleanly in Mac OS X's Disk Utility without any issues.

Requirements It is in ISO format and Zipped for maximum compatibility. However the text of the magazine itself is in DocMaker standalone application format and you will need a Mac running classic OS or an emulator to read them. Failing that you can also extract the text and the images using a Resource Fork editor like Rezycle.
This upload is mostly a test to see if you like this format. If you do, then I can upload all my other IMG discs, which contain so many articles, movies, images, demos, shareware, updates, add-ons, and E-zines from the era. Where else on the Internet are you going to find articles from Chris McVeigh's MacSense or full issues of Mac Doom Review? Or legacy versions of gaming software that were just like the ones you remember, and not the ones that "broke" with an update?
Also contained on this CD is every single issue from 1994, or all of Volume 2, when they were still released on floppy disks. This issue is among the very first to appear on CD, but not the first. That one is from October 1994 and trust me I will trade gold boullion for it, if that's what it takes. For now I am happy to have this and hope you are too. :) More versions will be out soon, but first I would like to know if you prefer a different format. Would you rather they were 7zipped? Any other special accuracy concerns, tips, and suggestions?
One final note about the naming of this torrent. This is just one issue. They made 10 issues a year and "combined" some months together, so that's why you have this awkward and essentially meaningless naming convention of saying this is both issues 1 and 2 of volume 3. Eventually they did away with that convention.
